Dear Friends and Supporters:
I have some exciting news! For years, you have enjoyed my articles and commentary on a wide variety of subjects. An exclusive content portal on my website has been developed to deliver to you, my friends and supporters, an array of revolutionary materials.
A number of my pieces have gone viral, reframed public discourse, and recast conversations outside the conventional paradigm of the left-right divide. These include "I'm a Freelance Writer. I Refuse to Write for Free," "White Chicks Behind Bars," “Gay Marriage IS A Conservative Cause,” and “‘Undocumented’: How an Identity Ended a Movement,” and "Why Is America Turning to Shit?" to name a few.
This work has often been for free, delivered to improve public discourse and provide my insights to the world. Now, I want to share special content and features with you, my friends and supporters, but I need your help.
Much of this work requires a great deal of investment of time and energy, but in the freelance world, the monetary return sometimes does not reflect its value. For a small subscription of $2, $5, or $10 a month, you help me to continue my work. In return:
- You get access to my weekly newsletter, which includes links to articles and resources around the web.
- Podcasts exclusive to subscribers (in process).
- Archive access to exclusive material generated during podcasts.
- The knowledge that you are helping to support independent, long-form analytic and journalistic work that cannot be found anywhere else.
Chloe: $2/month or $20/year
